It means I can eat gluten again, but I just can't eat to much since it is hard to digest. She also suggested applesauce over an apple and smoothies since they everything is already broken up. Also, lower fat is better since fat slows down your gut. I'm just happy that they have a clue what's going on now!

Glad you got a diagnosis! Hey you may start lactating again now that you'll be taking Reglan!

Oh and I haven't ha a chance to read the DS thread, but I just checked a bunch of my pockets (and a pocket AIO) and none have anything gross lurking inside. Some of the pockets were ones I used with DD for over 2 years, too, and they were never turned inside out that whole time. So, I dunno.

I guess I can organize soap making if someone wants to volunteer their house. Target has the silicone molds In the dollar section again, so I picked up a few more. I have the snowman one, like elmhs, and a tree one and a snowflake one.

Apparently it can just come on really fast. Usually there is an illness right before it happens and while I can't think of anything right at that time, I know the kids had Chicken Pox right before then, so maybe my body was fighting that and then I got sick? In other words, no one knows?

elmh - great news on the diagnosis! At least now you have somewhere to start! Hopefully it can be managed easily without more diet changes too.

crazy - I was just going to mention the molds at Target, I got the same ones too. I would be up for soap as well.

We got ds's blood taken today (possible low thyroid), so hopefully in a few weeks we will find out that it is a non-issue. Keep your fingers crossed! We also got the results of DH's latest MRI, which actually proved why he has been having back pain for YEARS, which no other Dr has been able to figure out Unfortunately now we have to figure out what it means, and howto deal with it if we can to manage the chronic pain

Off to bed and a busy project day tomorrow!!

Just a modifiedartist.gif trying to find some peace and regain my balance.

Hopefully you'll find out what it really means for him. Cronic pain sucks in general but one of the worst places to get it is the back because it effects everything else.

Anyone have a really big box that they don't need? I need one to make Little S a "cave" so he can have alone time when he feels out of control. He won't go in to the other areas we have for him to do that. We used the box his carseat came in for awhile but then the kids stabbed it a bunch with a pen (thanks hubby for showing them that!) and it fell apart.

I think the fact that it's a "neckwork" might be your problem but I'm no expert.

We don't have any boxes that are around that size sorry, I'll double check though.

I can help you out, ASF. Computers and networks are my specialty! No seriously. . .I've been in IT doing just that sort of thing for about 10 years now.

Alright, ASF.

Elmh - how big of a box do you need? We bought an over-the-range microwave, just haven't installed it yet. Will do so this weekend, but I figure you can have the box if it's large enough. It's big enough E can fit in it no problem, but I don't know how big you need it.

That would be a good size Crazy.

So a side effect of the Reglan has me feeling like I could fall asleep at any moment. I called dh at work and he hasn't called me back. Hopefully he will soon. I'm tired! and Little S is refusing a nap. Thank God for movies.

Mama of three.

I'll try to get the box to you on Sat when we come over. . .hopefully we'll have it installed by then.

Sorry about the side-effects I was on Reglan for a while and it made me feel the same way at first. It also gave me depression, which is another potential side effect, so just something to be aware of. I hope it does help with your tummy trouble, though! Did the doctors say anything about your condition going away at some point? Or is this going to be a life-long issue?

It can go away at any time, we just don't know when. The plan right now is to stabalize on Reglan and then eventually wean off of it.

Dh can't work from home today. I'm so tired. Thankfully Little S is finally taking a nap and S is watching a movie in my room. Wish I had caffiene.

So are we ever going to have a December thread or are we stuck in November forever? LOL

On the upside, my kid can now sit. Took him 'till 8 mos old, but he finally does it willingly now. You don't know how much easier this makes my life. Maybe he'll actually sit in a shopping cart or restaurant high chair like normal babies do.
